Joanna Gruesome / Perfect Pussy 'Astonishing Adventures! Split EP'

£5.99

The Joanna Gruesome/Perfect Pussy mutual admiration society had an emergency meeting and this split single was the result. Each band does one original song and one cover, and the single comes with a super cool 24-page comic by renowned artist Phil McAndrew.

For the covers, each band has dug deep and skirted the obvious. Joanna Gruesome turn in a driving, pummeling version of I Hate Myself's "...And Keep Reaching For The Stars," while Perfect Pussy tackle The Sugarcubes "A Leash Called Love." And of course the originals are 100% up to both group's usual high standards.

It's a fantastic package, the bands' styles complementing each other perfectly. A brilliant racket, and a fun read.
